I didn't wear my Michele CSX 36 w/ diamond watch for a few days..When I went to put it on the time was wrong. So I tried to correct it and now it has not kept accurate time w/in a 24 hr period. Fo


I am pretty 100 percent sure that Michele CSX 36 diamonds only comes with a swiss quartz movement not an automatic movement.
So the problem seems to be that the battery is dying and need to be replaced. Stopping and going is usually a sign of a battery dying in a swiss quartz movement.
So it should be nothing major and just a battery.

It appears my F6 monitor is not keeping accurant time on calories and heart rate. I like the watch but while checking my sitting heart rate is very low. When checking the heart rate on a blood pressure...


First you need to understand that the Polar system is a medical grade device and it is calculating calories based on specific information that you have inputed and heart rate data from your heart.

Most treadmills and other exercise machines use a much simpler counter that is height and weight based to calculate calories and are generally over generous with their numbers.

Depending on the blood pressure machine you are using, the pulse (not heart rate) is coming through the brachial artery, again not quite as accurate as measuring r-r variance from your heart. There is a ton of literature you can read if you are into the accurateness of the system, but I will sum up with saying that you actual calorie expenditure will be closer on the Polar than on most other devices outside of a hospital. As too the heart rate this is also true, so more likely you are getting inaccurate numbers from the other devices.

If you want pinpoint accuracy then you will need to use the Polar RS800 or S810 devices that measure and display true R-R.

Could I use the Nike+ pod together with a Garmin forerunner 210?


Nope: Different types of signals.

That being said, there is a foot pod that Garmin makes if you want that type of data sensor. The GPS in the 210 is more accurate than the Nike+ pod, and the Garmin foot pod is about equally accurate with the 210, but allows you to use the watch when there is no GPS signal

Just bough a Subaqua Noma III Chronograph Watch and the Day of the week...where it says mon tues etc...changes at 3 am instead of at midnight. how can i fix this


you cannot fix this. Unfortunately for movements to be that exact they cost a lot of money and the movement inside your subaqua is not that high tech and accurate. This is what makes watch really expensive the little things like this. Unless you are buying a 10k watch , they usually are not going to have the top of the line movement . The movement you have in your watch is an ISA 8173 and that is as accurate as the watch will get.

I have 2 sector watches. BOTH lose time when I'm visiting the UK but keep accurate time when I'm in the U.S. Both have new batteries. It's really bizarre. Any ideas what the problem might be?


I have looked at their web site and cannot identify your watch from the number given, as they do not give numbers to their models.

The only thing that may change between countries is the transmission frequency of the radio timing pulses. (This assumes that your watch is an "atomic accuracy" type, which registers local transmitters.)

If this is not the case, then your watch is in the same class as those that work accurately when being worn but not when they are taken off (or vice versa). A mystery all round!

My watch is over banked what does this mean


Overbanked: A lever escapement error; the roller jewel passes to the wrong side of the lever notch, causing one side of the pallet to rest against the banking pin and the roller jewel to rest against the other side, thus locking the escapement and stopping the motion of the balance.

I cut and pasted this from: http://www.nawcc154-daytonabeach.com/watch_terminology.htm#O

It's a pretty accurate definition.
In layman's terms: Your watch needs some serious repair from a certified horologist and probably has problems other than the above mentioned.

Casio WV58A-9AV Atomic Watch Signal Symbol


When the logo is not shown in the bottom corner, the watch hasn't got a signal yet. put your watch on a window sill, and hold the Forward buton until the watch says GET! Form there, the watch will either display ERROR, if it couldn't find a signal, or will have the latest and most accurate time. The watch is also probably set up for auto detect, which is best. To do auto detect, before going to bed, the watch will try to get a signal from 12 midnight, to 5 in the morning.

Incorrect altitude changes


Here is the link to the user manual for this watch if you need it; http://www.lacrossetechnology.com/k2100/manual.pdf page 12 gives you all the contact details for lacrosse. I couldnt find the info online to be sure, but some of these watches do have a separate pressure sensor for altitude and barometric pressure, and sometimes the path to one could get blocked or it could become faulty. I would contact la crosse and find a dealer to get the watch serviced, you could probably do it yourself but you need to get replacement seals from them anyway (these are important). ask them to check if the sensor is clogged, it happens sometimes. Hope this helps :)
